From the desk of Judy Pitchford
Beginning today and running through August 31, 2015, the Washington State Library, Washington State Archives (both divisions of the Office of the Secretary of State) and Timberland Regional Library are sponsoring the 1st Annual Historical Zine Contest!
What is a Zine (which, by the way, rhymes with bean)? Zines are basically self-published magazines that give the creator’s point of view on the subject.
All three sponsors have a multitude of resources that can provide fantastic material to use in the creations of participants.
- Washington State Library has many online resources that include books, maps, newspapers and photos. You can also find featured images from these digital collections on their Pinterest and Flickr pages. And don’t forget that you can visit the library to see some resources in person!
- Washington State Archives has an extensive print collection, as well as many images at the Digital Archives.
- And you can visit the Timberland Libraries to explore their NW Reference Collection, Zine Collection and Zine Resource Collection.
Workshops will be held in July to learn how to make a zine :
- Olympia Timberland Library – Saturday, July 11th from 2-8 pm
- Yelm Timberland Library – Saturday, July 25th from 1-4 pm
This contest is open to 4th graders through adults of all ages that are Washington residents.
